Image of Thanksgving CenterpieceThanksgiving Day is celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday in November. Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving every second Monday in October. Thanksgiving is celebrated to commemorate a feast held in 1621 by the Pilgrims and the native Indians.

Most of North America celebrates the Thanksgiving holiday as an expression of gratitude, usually to God. Thanksgiving is a day marked to give thanks to God for the bounty of the autumn harvest. Thanksgiving Day in America is a time of turkeys, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. But the table would be incomplete without a Thanksgiving Flower centerpiece or cornucopia (horn of plenty) in red, yellow and orange colors of autumn. You can easily Order Thanksgiving Flowers Online for your host, acquaintances, family and friends.

Since Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving during the height of autumn, the vibrancy of the changing leaves and the hearty autumn produce are the holiday's focus. Thanksgiving Flower Centerpieces adorn Thanksgiving dinner tables, floral wreathes made from fall leaves hang on front doors, and pumpkin pie is the dessert of choice.

Everywhere else too, Thanksgiving is traditionally celebrated with a family dinner and Autumn flowers highlighting the centre of the table. Autumn Flowers (Daffodils, Lilacs, Daisies, etc.) accent the holiday season or show friends and family you are thinking of them on Thanksgiving when you Send Thanksgiving Flowers. A Thanksgiving Flower Gift conveys your thanks to your family, friends and hosts. Fall Flower Arrangements of Dahlias, Gladioli, Zinnias, etc., too make a statement.

Thanking God for a bountiful harvest is known in some other parts of the world. Apart from North America, there are a number of religions and countries that celebrate Thanksgiving Day in their own form during the harvest season. The festivals are dedicated to thank the Lord for his blessings and the abundance and prosperity that He bestowed. Similar festivals were celebrated in ancient Greece, Rome, China and Egypt

Origin Of Thanksgiving

Pilgrims, members of the English Separatist Church, sailed to the US aboard the Mayflower (a Puritan sect). The Pilgrims and some colonists set ground at Plymouth Rock on December 11, 1620. Their first winter was devastating. But their subsequent harvest in 1621 was bountiful. The colonists celebrated with a feast with including 91 Indians who had helped the Pilgrims survive their first year.

Contrary to popular belief, the pilgrims and their Native American guests did not sit down to a meal featuring turkey, corn, cranberries, and pumpkin pie (in fact, they did not even have forks!).

The feast was not repeated the following year. But in 1623, during a severe drought, the pilgrims gathered in a prayer service, praying for rain. When a long, steady rain followed the very next day, another day of Thanksgiving was proclaimed, again with the Indians.

In 1863, President Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday in November as a national day of Thanksgiving. In 1941, Thanksgiving was finally sanctioned by the Congress as a legal holiday, as the fourth Thursday in November.

While Canadians have observed this harvest feast since the mid-1500s, Thanksgiving Day was not observed on any particular date until 1957. The Canadian government proclaimed the second Monday of October a federal holiday. The Canadian Thanksgiving holiday evolved separately from the U.S. one, but its main tradition also marks families and communities coming together to feast on turkey, stuffing, and pie. Family and friends gather and say grace, a short prayer of thanks, before the Thanksgiving meal.
